1959 Boston City Directory Vol. 2 (L-Z)
This is Polk's Boston City Directory from 1959 containing names from L-Z, published by R.L.Polk & Co.
As best as I can tell, page sequence is:
n1-n31.......Description of Boston
3-212........Business Listings A-Z (Yellow Pages)
1469-2871....List of Names L-Z
n1641-n1643..Statement, Ad, How to use directory
445-838......Alphabetical listing of streets L-Z, with names of occupants sorted by address
p. n1643 shows the wealth of information that can be found in here.
p. 445 lists the old 2 digit postal zone numbers
This is not a telephone directory, but some advertisements contain phone numbers listed in an old format, when each exchange had a place-name. The first 2 letters of the place-name were capitalized and would be dialed.
